Audio - What's in your system?

I know there must be some people in here that are as obsessed about audio as they are about cycling.

My current system is as follows:

Linn LP12 w/ Lingo power supply
Alphason HR100MCS (I have considered replacing this arm, but it is just soooo good)
Benz Micro Ruby

Conrad Johnson PV-9
Paoli SOB monoblock amps (4 of 'em)

Montana EPX speakers

Audioquest interconnects and speaker cable

Speakers: Onix Reference .5
Reciever: Yamaha RX-496 (stereo reciever)
CD/DVD: Pioneer DV-C503
interconnects: self-made 75ohm interconnects, double shielded.
Speaker cable: K&B signal solutions (I was too lazy to sleeve/solder my own pair, so I bought some)

This is also the system I watch movies on, if you add in my Samsung something or other standard-def TV set....which uses the same 75ohm interconnects I made for my audio. (75ohm is both video and digital impedance, and since there is no impedance spec for analog audio, one cable design does it all, I just mark each cable's ends with a different color ring to identify channels/sources/etc).

...I also fall under the "budget audiophile" (aka cheap bastid) category, so I just can't stand the thought of spending thousands on any one component.
